Dear Room 7,

I’m very excited to hear all your thoughts about what you’re reading on your individual wiki pages. I’ve really enjoyed all your enthusiasm about Silverwing. Even though this is my twelfth time reading it, I still get really excited about sharing it every year. *The genre of this book is definitely fantasy since I don’t believe that bats and owls have wars or detailed adventures together. I also consider this to be a genre of my own invention- called Animal Adventure. I love the character Shade; he’s one of my all-time favorites. *If I could talk to Shade, I would ask him if he thinks it was worth it to break the law and see the sun, especially after what happens to his colony as a result.

Your friend in reading,

Mrs. Palmieri J

Dear Mrs. [[#|Palmieri]]
This book makes me think about my cousins in New York. Also I finished Tia Lola it is one of the best books I have read all year. The end is my favorite part when they go to the Denominic republic and meet there cousins. I wander what it would be like to have a hot Christmas. Well I know that I will never find out. But the book is realy goo cant wait for another book to read.

Dear Team 7,

Good [[#|Job]] getting started doing wiki and RAZ.

Remember on your wiki-

  1. Please write like its a letter- Date, Greeting, Body, Closing, Signature

  2. Make sure to write about one book only (unless you are writing multiple [[#|paragraphs]]

  3. YOU MUST use sentence leads from the pink sheet in your response. These will help me see your thinking about what you are reading.

Use your time wisely during Reading block and you'll be able to get these done at school!


Dear Mrs. Palmier
I have been reading buddy files so far so good it is very interesting I am on the part where he just got in to the art room. Conor is a very nice and interesting but I have no clue who Agatha is do you know who's Agatha is.


Dear Mrs. Palmieri
reading the first two chapters of Sophia's war. The story really changed but over all the story has been great. But I have been thinking about what Sophia is going to do? I think she is much more mature so she will do something to John Andre. Because he did say he would help them but he did not.

What will Sophia do to avenge her brother I think she will try to find John Andre and try to effect his life like he effected Sophia's life. What will Sophia do to john Andre?

Tomaso also what Quinn said about him in his story is not true.

Dear Room 7 student,

I am glad that I am reading Sophia's War__ out loud to you. I enjoyed reading it this summer and think it is making a great read aloud, It is a challenging book, with many old fashioned and difficult words so I think this may have been challenging for many of you to read on your own.

*The author Avi got me really interested when he ended Part One of the book with Sophia ready to seek revenge for the death of her brother William. I have been giving you some hints about what might happen. I will tell you that working at the [[#|print]] shop is key to what Sophia will do next and how she will get even with John Andre, whom she blames for not helping her brother.**If I could talk to Sophia, I would ask her if she is afraid to go after Andre.

What do think will happen next?

Talk to you soon,
Mrs. P:)

Dear Room 7 member-

You and write will write back and forth to each other about what we have been reading.
I will ask you [[#|questions]] that you can answer, and you can ask me questions too.

Make sure to always write about ONE book and to use SENTENCE LEADS to help you with
your thinking.

Your friend,
Mrs. P
